It’s one thing to discuss the Oscars red carpet and pick out our favorite dresses, and maybe even try to recreate the looks. But to do all that and rock a red carpet getup at just five years old is a whole different playing field. Mayhem is a fashion prodigy, spending her days recreating high-fashion looks (and Disney princess gowns) from construction paper, tissue paper and whatever else mom has lying around the house. This year, Mayhem recreated a couple of her favorite red carpet looks to join favorite iconic dresses from the past.
According to mom’s Instagram post, Mayhem liked Patricia Arquette’s draped sleeve and insisted she and mom make the clutch purse to go with it. We don’t blame her for choosing the classic look. The girl has taste.
Mayhem singled out Emma Stone’s beaded ensemble to recreate, a fashion-forward choice for both the star and five year old.
Mayhem even made heels out of paper to go with the outfit.
For a special segment on Live With Kelly and Michael, Mayhem recreated a few of the Oscars’ most-beloved gowns from the past, including Julia Roberts’ chic Valentino number from 2001.
She also made Halle Berry’s Ellie Saab gown from 2002, complete with a little sheer in the top and flower detail. We think Mayhem needs one of those Lego Oscars, like pronto.
Finally, Mayhem recreated Audrey Hepburn’s 1954 Oscar dress by Givenchy. That printed paper is on point.
We think Mayhem has a bright future in fashion. She’s already got her own line debuting this summer with J.Crew, and she’s still got 17 years before she graduates college. Please excuse us while we figure out how to be as successful as a five year old.
What Oscar dress would you like to see Mayhem recreate? (We think Lupita’s pearl gown would be perfect.) Let us know in the comments!
